[PS]TR Style Signatures

Post by Atriax on Wed Dec 16, 2009 8:16 pm




Introduction:
I'll be teaching you how to make this sort of thing.
This was my first try, and I think it worked out pretty well.
I won't be covering custom character/weapon/pet creation though.
The canvas should be 500x100.

Note: You can skip these steps with this: Signature template (Courtesy of V)
I re-uploaded it to my site, to skip the silly rapidshare nonsense. It should just start downloading.

Step 1: Creating the Bar
The bar is a rounded rectangle, with a 10mm curve.
The length depends on how much is in it, but mine was 492 pixels. 500 might be easier for you though.
Then, delete the empty background layer.

Step 2: Filling in the bar
In my example, is a cut of my aqw house, covered with a light gradient.
In yours, it can be just a gradient, or a screenshot from aqw, or anything.

Screenshot (Harder):
Put it on a layer below your bar.
Then, going back to the bar layer, select it with the magic wand tool.
Then, switch to the screenshot layer, select inverse, and cut it out.
It should fit nicely over the bar. Now, you can delete the first bar.
Add a stroke to the screenshot, by right-clicking the layer and on stroke.

Gradient:
Go to blending options, select stroke, change the colour to what you like.
Then, go to gradient overlay and fiddle about.

Step 3: Adding a character
Now, get your character sprite (I'm sure there's a guide to do this somewhere), and paste it over the top.
Cut out everything you don't want.

Step 4: Text
Choose a text size between 8 and 11, and the font is 04b03. (Courtesy of Ryzaa)

Have fun!!
Just fiddle around a bit, and have fun.

Awesome, except the font size was 8, and you might want to add an offsite link to the font?
Maybe? Just a suggestion.

Wow, great guide! Thanks for posting this, Atri.

Also, the Rapidshare I gave to Ry had a 50 Px Radius to give it that "bar" effect. But I like the 10px too ;)

Nice, I like it.
Only CC is the sword, which is cut off.
You can remedy it by lowering the signature to the bottom, and having your character lower.

Advice time :P
I like it, but you should take more care while spriting.
Also, when you're making objects fit in, make sure the bottom if it doesn't cover the sprite. Also, a thicker stroke would be a good improvement.
I also recommend trying to stick to a more obvious colour scheme. Dark Green and light blue works for you.
Also, a more readable font wouldn't go amiss. And try bringing it down to the edge of the bar, so it has a sitting effect. I don't know what program you're using, but i'm pretty sure you can do all that in GIMP.

Hope I helped.

Ok.
When you're spriting, make sure it's large picture, larger than you actually need.
Then it should look nicer.

I'm a bit confused.
When I create a new layer, I can't find an option to paste in a screeny for the spriting.
A little help please?


To Atriax: Yeah, I would be interested in a custom character avvy.
